    Jantar Mantar

    May 30, 2019 in India ⋅ ⛅ 44 °C

    This is another area which is a disgrace, it has so much potential as a great tourist attraction but has been forgotten as so many things in India are.

    Jantar Mantar dates back to 1724 and translates literally as" instruments formulae". The 13 structures are large architectural astronomy instruments used to make accurate observations for the purpose of predicting solar, lunar and planetary movements.

    They really did not have any clear explanations on how the srtuctures worked which is a shame as John likes this sort of stuff.

    New Delhi - India

    March 22 in India ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Ich war schon so oft in Indian, wann das erste Mal in New Delhi? War wohl 2002. Leider gingen damals alle digitalen Bilder einem Virus zu Opfer.
    Das letze mal, 2019, hatte ich denn einen Abstecher nach Agra gemacht. Ganz am Morgen mit dem Taxi hin, Taj Mahal, Red Fort und sonst noch etwas von Agra angesehen und am Abend wieder nach New Delhi. Das waren jeweils 4 Stunden auf der Autobahn, aber die Reise wert!Read more

    Travel Day

    December 9, 2019 in India ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Wake early, no shower, walk out to hail a tuktuk to Agra Cant - 100INR. Get on train... pollution visibly getting worse as we get closer to New Dehli and need to wear scarf and buff over nose the whole journey - M&Z both have headaches, M constant runny nose, Z blowing out black gunk out of nose. Naughty child behind M and kept shaking m’s seat - mum or dad weren’t doing anything about it so had to remind parents what their child was doing. Later child watching kids show wit that had a song “sugar, sugar, why are you so yummy? Chocolate chocolate, please get in my tummy!” .. get to New Delhi Cant at 10:20am, get on LRT transfer to airport. Cleanest transport we’ve been on in India, looks very new. Can’t check in for our 16:20 flight to Bangkok -grab breakfast. Check in, have lunch then board flight. Arrive Bangkok at 21:40, grab cab & check into apartment guesthouse. Took guesthouse bicycles to get dinner at nearby street vendor. Ka pow moo Krop x2 and Coke .Take long showers, sleep.Read more
